Get In The Game 2018

  1. Updates

Playworks Michigan is sending a HUGE thank you to all who attended and helped make this year’s Get in the Game the most profitable and most attended one yet! We would especially like to thank all of our sponsors and donors for helping us achieve this success! Funds raised will help Playworks bring safe and healthy play to more than 60,000 girls and boys across the metro-Detroit area this year.

Nearly 200 guests gathered at The Beacon Detroit on October 26 for an impactful evening of games, dinner, mingling and fundraising in support of Playworks Michigan, and using the power of play to bring out the best in every child.

This year’s event celebrated the outstanding leadership of our Most Valuable Educator: Nicholas Brown, our Recess Superhero: The Detroit Pistons, and our Game Changer: The Michigan Health Endowment Fund. These awardees were celebrated alongside our guests, staff and amazing junior coaches.
